Established in 1966, SDM Group is one of the longest standing and well respected motor groups in Central Scotland. SDM are a family owned business that operates three new and used car franchises from two sites in Falkirk.
In 2015, owners Brian and David Aitken wished to review the structure of their senior management team to ensure that it was set up correctly and that each member of the team had distinct roles and responsibilities that best reflected their talents and capabilities.
In order to ensure that the restructuring was completed in line with legislation, SDM approached Solve to support them with this. Solve provided face to face support and guidance to Brian and David throughout the restructuring including:
Drafting of all required documentation to ensure consistency and legal compliance
Face to face support at all individual consultation meetings
Advice on legislation relating to redundancy and settlement agreements
With the help of Solve. SDM’s restructuring was completed successfully and the business is now set up more productively, giving Brian and David piece of mind and the ability to step away from the business as required, knowing it is being run with the right people in the right roles.
SDM have gone on to use Solve for recruitment and absence management support.
Brian Aitken says of Solve ‘Myself and David were highly delighted with the support offered by Solve they worked with us every step of the way through our project and their advice and guidance was invaluable. I would thoroughly recommend Solve’s services to any business owner looking for outsourced HR support’.
